About Our Rescue Group:Greyhounds of the Verde Valley (GVV) started in 2007 when we rescued 2 greyhounds from the Tucson AZ race track. We are an all volunteer rescue group dedicated to saving the lives of these wonderful animals.
When greyhounds have been retired from racing, they are kept in cages up to 20 hours a day at the track until someone agrees to rescue them. GVV does not have a shelter so we need volunteers who are willing to save a greyhound's life and foster one of these beautiful dogs until a forever home can be found. Please consider volunteering for any of the many jobs we have as part of this rescue operation. We need people to attend Meet & Greet adoption events, to transport greyhounds from Tucson or Sedona to their foster or forever homes, help with raising funds, training, and anything you could think of to help.
Come Meet our Pets:Monthly Adoption events include:
** 2nd Saturday of the month at Petsmart in Flagstaff
** 3rd Saturday of the month at Petco in Flagstaff
** 4th Saturday of the month at Petsmart in Sedona (Safeway Plaza)
